Michelin call on Facebook fans to name top supercars

30th May 2012

Tyre manufacturer Michelin has called on Facebook fans to name their favourite supercars of the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s as part of a new interactive campaign.

The team at Michelin tyres are polling fans as part of its sponsorship of the Supercar Paddock at this summer's Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Scheduled for the weekend of June 28th, the festival promises to be a rare treat for petrol heads of all shapes and sizes next month with McLaren pair Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button set to appear.

Things are already hotting up in the social media poll too, with the ever-popular Porsche 959 beating off competition from the Lamborghini Countach and Ferrari F40 to claim the ultimate 80s supercar crown.

Meanwhile in the 90s poll, the McLaren F1 took top spot ahead of the Bugatti EB110 and Porsche 993 GT2. The 2000s poll is now underway, with Facebook fans invited to choose from the Bugatti Veyron, Ascari KZ-1 and Koenigsegg CCX.

The voting doesn't stop there either, with Michelin adding a "King of Supercars: The Final Race" vote to decide the all time winner.

Fans have every incentive to vote too, with two pairs of Goodwood tickets available to anyone taking part in each poll.

A grand prize is also up for grabs, with the winning entrant given a chance to ride with Andreas Mikkelsen at the Goodwood Forest Rally Stage.
